In Britain we have over 250 species of wild bees (including Bumblebees) that pollinate over a third of our food crops. These are different from honeybees,  so while we're all worried about the new honeybee colony collapse disorder, there is still much we can do to help create habitat for other wild bees that do not sting and do not suffer from the varoa mite that is affecting honeybees.

One thing you can do to help bees is grow the right plants.My new book 'Gardening for Butterflies Bees and other beneficial insects' has photos and ID charts for many of our different wild bees plus what plants they need. 

Bumblebees are also endangered due to loss of habitat; you can find out more on the Bumblebee Trust website;
